Council freezes outside bids for Summer Concert
Gary Mandell, who has produced one of Culver City’s most popular summer venues for the last 14 years, will continue in that capacity after the City Council voted to 4-0 to forego sending out a request for proposals for the 2015 season.
The council considered a recommendation from the Cultural Affairs Commission to cast a wider net for potential new producers as it plans to move the concert venue moves from City Hall to Parcel B in Town Plaza downtown, but decided to wait until the development is completed before considering outside bids to produce the music series. The downtown site has been in the works for 15 years and earlier this year the city received a green light from the state Department of Finance to move ahead with a trio of projects, including the Parcel B.
